namespace Zend\Loader;

interface PluginClassLocator
{
    public function registerPlugin($shortName, $className);
    public function unregisterPlugin($shortName);
    public function getRegisteredPlugins();
}

Configuration Options

This component defines no configuration options, as it is an interface.

Available Methods

registerPlugin() Implement this method to add or overwrite plugin name/class name associations in the internal plugin map. $shortName will be aliased to $className.

unregisterPlugin

Remove a plugin/class name association unregisterPlugin($shortName)

unregisterPlugin() Implement this to allow removing an existing plugin mapping corresponding to $shortName.

getRegisteredPlugins

Retrieve the map of plugin name/class name associations getRegisteredPlugins()

getRegisteredPlugins() Implement this to allow returning the plugin name/class name map.
